My Students

My students come to school every day ready to learn! They are creative, thoughtful, kind, and are full of curiosity. They are eager to learn and each has a unique learning style. As their teacher I try to meet each of their learning styles so they are successful and actively engaged in my classroom.

My students all come with different academic and social backgrounds.

They grow throughout the year, and we celebrate our achievements. Third grade is a big year for growth and understanding.

My Project

STEAM programs help today’s students advance their critical thinking and creativity through Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts/Design, and Mathematics—all areas that will prove to be vitally important to our world in the years to come.

The STEM Bundle and Blocks and Blueprints will give my students a variety of ways to discover and create using critical thinking.

STEAM activities are some of the best ways to involve students with hands-on learning. Not only will they work on critical thinking, they will work on cooperative skills. This project will give my students the materials they need to to improve these skills.
